Hey SL cricket fans, Let’s have a lil turn back to discuss about the just concluded Bangladesh Tri-nation tournament which was a very successful tour for the Sri Lankan cricket team.
As many said that it’s so hard to grab the IDEA CUP against such a strong team like India with an INEXPERIENCED team, our lions have changed that attitude and finally grab the victory!I And it’s a very good message for all the spectators that, now SL cricket looks healthy than past days.It was never an easy piece of work for Sangakkara, Dilly and Tharanga, and all other rest to battle with inexperience.
So these few seniors:Sanga,Dilly n Tharanga had to take a lot of burdens on their shoulders.It really looked lyk a ‘half boiled egg’without seniors like Mahela,Sana,Murali etc.left out for some reasons:Injuries,Dropped, in the side.
But with confidence,all did their job well.More credit must go to Sangakkara for his classy hits,for how he lead the team as a wise skipper n for his brilliant peice of work behind the stumps..!And the plus points of this tour is that the inexperience youngsters’ contribution for gr8 victories.
1)Thisara-A self confident brilliant hitter @ needed times
2)Suraj-A very fine player,marvellous fielding,good bowling(his half century is superb! against Indians even SL lose it).
3)Lahiru-had a good start in career with pressure.
4)Welagedara-good bowling with great control n with a good eye.!Bravo!
Mahela had a great come back after his injury,batted brilliantly as the opening pair with Tharanga n gain confirmed his no.4 position.Samaraweera also contributed well in the middle.But Kandamby failed 2 score so well during that series. Disappointing! He must work hard..!
Dilli made amazing scores! And what we all noticed during this whole series is the success of our skipper SANGA! He had very good contributions batting at no.3, leading the team and advising the players wisely.
The final result of SANGA’S success was that he won the title-MAN OF THE SERIES/QUICKEST FIFTY- in finals! Cheers Sanga!
At last we can all say that SRI LANKA had a brilliant star for the new year! I wish our roaring lions 2 continue all ur gud,hard jobs throught the year 2010!
PROUD TO B A SRI LANKAN!
